Removing the Mac mini Wi-Fi antenna plateWith the ram remove, you can let the Wi-Fi antenna plate away from the case.
Note: There is a wire connecting the antenna to the AirPort/Bluetooth board. You'll need to disconnect this wire before removing the plate.
Also, you may want to remove the cooling fan and black plastic cowling (which I do later), before removing the antenna plate. You can slide the plate past these two components, but it's a tight fit.
